Master Bedroom Ceiling Fans

stlouieFebruary 19, 2010

I realize that alot of people seem to be doing chandeliers in their bedrooms, but I really like having the air moving and would prefer a ceiling fan. I don't like the typical ceiling fan that has all the lights hanging down underneath, and this will be the only light source in a small room, in addition to bedside lamps.

The ceilings are 8ft, so I don't want much of a downrod at all, if any. I was looking at a 52" hugger ceiling fan from Minka Aire called the Concept, which is oil rubbed bronze on the base, but the fan blades are plastic because it's rated for outdoor use. I went to look at it in person, and wasn't really impressed with the plastic blades. They do have the same fan in a Mahogany finish with wood blades, but we will have espresso with frosted glass closet doors along 15ft of one side of the room, and the hardwood floors will be Cumaru, which is brown tones. I'm afraid introducing the red tone of Mahogany won't look good. Any other ideas for a more sleek look?

Monte Carlo Discus II has the wood blades and hugger style.

All my bedroom fans are white to match the ceilings and trim. This makes the fan look sleek to me. I have an inexpensive fan from Home Depot and it gives plenty of light. I don't like the tulip lamp shades either. Anyway, I got the Hunter Stratford. Super quiet, easy to install. Very happy. Here's a link to Hunter fans just for the photos. I've never shopped here.
